Fall District Convention/Contest
The District Contest is held in mid-October each year. Its location can change from year to year. What do district winners actually win? Well, the Chorus Champions win the right to represent the district at next year’s international contest and convention. The district Quartet Champs earn the title, the admiration of everyone in the district, and bragging rights for a year. But the district quartet championship has nothing to do with determining the quartets that represent the district at next year’s international contest. That’s accomplished at another JAD contest, the “Spring Prelims.” Finally, the highest-scoring Senior Quartetat the District Contest will represent JAD at the Midwinter Convention.
